Once there was a boy named Henry and his big dog Mudge. Henry was sick and Mudge wanted to play. So Henry got two orange popsicles, two grape popsicles and two packs of crackers for Mudge. Then in the morning Mudge was sick. They tried to take Mudge to the vet. If you want to see what happens next you need to read the book.

I really liked this book because it is funny when he got up the next morning. He hopped out of bed and put his hand out to shake hands but Mudge was sick. Henry was mad because Mudge was sick and that was funny. This reminded me of the time I was sick and my dog kept wanting to play with me.

I would recommend this book because it has action and it is funny in some ways. Not in many, many ways but in some ways. I think people who like action books will love this one. This book is packed with a lot of action.
